How long does it take for Facebook to delete a fake account?

If Facebook detects and deletes 24.7 million accounts each day and has 119 million fraudulent accounts on the system at any given moment, the average detect and delete time is 4.8 days. However, if all of the accounts deleted were unique, the average detection and deletion time would be less than 2 hours.

How long can you temporarily deactivate your Facebook account?

Facebook retains accounts for 14 days before terminating them. According to the social network, there is no time restriction on how long a person may have her account inactive. However, if a Facebook user truly wishes to end the relationship, she might choose to erase the account entirely. In that case, the user would need to contact Facebook directly to get her account removed.

How many fake Facebook accounts have been taken down?

Facebook said it discovered 99.3 percent of the 2.8 billion phony accounts it discovered in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30 on its own. Those figures also contradict my own observations. I quickly made 11 Facebook identities with the same name, employment, and profile photo as my verified account last year. Only one was removed by Facebook for being suspicious. The other 10 were still active at the time of writing.

That's a success rate of 100 percent - which is very impressive given how easy it is to make multiple accounts using simple tools like Google Apps or free web-based services such as Create Facebook Page.

In fact, there are probably people out there who could make hundreds or even thousands of fake accounts with little effort. It's likely that some of them may be removed by Facebook but others would stay active unless they're used for malicious activity. For example, a person could create dozens of accounts to post spam on users' feeds or to distribute malware via targeted advertising. In this case, Facebook would know about it when users report these posts as spam or malware and take action - such as deleting the account.

However, it's important to note that removing all those accounts would be very difficult for Facebook.

Does Facebook automatically reactivate your account?

The world's largest social network is going where few have gone before by developing a tool that encourages users who deactivate their accounts to automatically "reactivate." It allows users who have Facebook fatigue to choose between 1 day and 28 days for their accounts to be automatically reactivated. Users can also choose to activate or deactivate their account themselves via email.

Here's how it works: If you decide to deactivate your account, then no one will be able to access it until after the time has passed. At this point, Facebook will send you an email asking if you want to reactivate your account. Simply click the link in the email and fill out a short form and you're back in business!

Why would anyone want to do this? Well, maybe you just forgot your password or decided you didn't want everyone knowing every detail of your life. No matter why you make the decision, once you reactivate your account, you'll be given another option to select a new expiration date for your account. So if you forget to check your email for several months, or even years, you can simply go back and re-select a new expiration date and keep everything as is.

What about people who share private information? Those who prefer not to share their personal details with the world should not worry about this tool. When you deactivate your account, any public content such as posts will be removed immediately without warning.

How long does it take for your Facebook account to be unlocked?

A normal time span is between 48 hours and 45 days. While Facebook uses AI for its verification process, which should result in faster response times in principle, if there are any anomalies in the review process, your account might be reported for a manual review, which takes longer. In that case, you will receive an email when your account is ready for use again.

How long does a Facebook suspension last?

Depending on the severity of the offence, a Facebook suspension might last anywhere from 1 to 90 days. If you can establish your identity, you might be able to regain access to your account within 24 hours. However, if you have violated Facebook's terms of use or community guidelines then it could take longer.

A Facebook suspension is imposed by the social network when it believes that its rules have been violated. These violations can include posting material that violates any law or regulation, including copyright laws. They can also include engaging in fraudulent activity, such as scamming people out of money through false promises. Finally, Facebook can suspend your account if they believe that you have used the service in an inappropriate manner. For example, if Facebook detects that you have had too many arguments with someone else over the comment section of their page then they might suspend your account.

When you first receive a notification that your account has been suspended, you will usually be given a reason for the action. If you feel that this reason isn't fair, you can complain about it with Facebook. They will review the case and either lift or keep in place the suspension.

In some cases, Facebook will contact you directly via email before suspending your account. If you don't follow this step, then your account will be suspended immediately.

How long before the Facebook page is deleted?

According to Facebook, it takes 14 days from the date of your request to be deleted. However, if you want the page removed faster, you can always send us a private message with the details of your request.

Does Facebook keep your information after you delete it?

You'll have a 30-day chance to alter your mind after deleting your Facebook account. After 30 days, all of your information will be completely destroyed and unavailable. Your contact information will still exist though - you can use this time to remove yourself from people lists.

Here's how Facebook handles deleted accounts:

All data associated with the account is permanently deleted from Facebook's servers when you delete your account. However, Facebook may retain some data about you if you have ever posted or published content on Facebook, even if you no longer own an account. This data includes posts you have shared, photos you have uploaded, comments you have made, and any other content on which you have been tagged.

In general, Facebook doesn't share this data with third parties. However, Facebook is known for its privacy policies, so there is always a chance that your information could end up in the hands of others. For example, if someone hacks Facebook and steals information, they could use your account ID to search for other accounts that belong to you. They could then email or message these other users without your knowledge or consent.

There are several ways around this issue. You can request that certain people who have your contact information not be contacted by Facebook.
